Thread: Candid Shot

  1. #1

    Default Candid Shot

    I feel awkward when pointing my camera in their face. And take their action and their emotion. When they see you taking picture these scenario will happen:

    1. Turn Away
    2. Shout at you
    3. Ask you to delete the pictures

    So what would you guys do and to take natural shots of people. I think that's really difficult.

    I got shouted by people and that was super embarrassing.

    Use a zoom lens, preferably a tele. For close up shot, be courteous, spend a little time talking and request a shot.

    No, I will gladly let them take. Because i am not a superstar or what. I would be happy if my face appear on magazine or what. (Not something bad of course),

    How far can your lens go? I mean even if u have zoom or tele lens. They see your camera facing in their directions, they will still cover or avoid the camera.

    Just smile at them... relax, you shouldn't act like a pervert or be sneaky about it....

    I shoot with 50mm or when the light is better with a old 70-210 zoom. And some of the subjects I shot knows I have been shooting them, no biggies...
